American Idol Instant Recap: MacKenzie Bourg, “Wild World”

MacKenzie's performance was straight swiss.

MacKenzie’s performance was straight swiss.

That was sneaky good.

There’s no doubt MacKenzie has more cheese in his performances than Wisconsin, but there’s something about it that’s fun. His take on Wild World was fun and different. It didn’t blow me away, but it was definitely something that I would hate, then my 4-year old would hear it in a Disney movie and I’d realize how awesome it is (like Frozen, Bieber’s “Sorry,” “Fight Song,” Taylor Swift, etc).

He’s not going to overpower anyone or have a deep emotional performance that has the audience in real tears (maybe some fake tween ones), but MacKenzie can have performances like that that are just plain good.

I liked that and I don’t care who knows.
